Sabbath Keeping - Gaelic Blessing

"The Lord gives strength to His people,
He blesses His people with peace."
~ Psalm 29:11 ~

"Peace is not the absence of conflict,
it is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means."
~ Ronald Reagan ~

"Forgive others, not because they deserve forgiveness
but because you deserve peace."

"Sometimes peace is better than being right."

"When the power of love
overcomes the love of power,
then we will have peace."
~ Jimi Hendrix ~

"Peace is our gift to each other." ~ Elie Wiesel ~

"If you're at war with others, 
you're not at peace with yourself."

"What kind of peace do we seek? Not a Pax Americana enforced on the world by American weapons of war. Not the peace of the grave or the security of the slave. I am talking about genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living, the kind that enables men and nations to grow and to hope and to build a better life for their children...not merely peace in our time but peace for all time." ~ J. F. Kennedy ~

"The price of freedom is eternal vigilance." 
~ Thomas Jefferson

"If the human race wishes to have a prolonged and indefinite period of material prosperity, they have only got to behave in a peaceful and helpful way toward one another."
~ Winston Churchill ~

"Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you.
Deep peace of Christ, the Light of the world, to you.
Deep peace of Christ."
~ Gaelic Blessing ~

"Peace I leave with you
My peace I give you
Not as the world gives do I give to you
Let not your heart be troubled
Neither let it be afraid."
~ John 14:27 ~

Please pray for ~ Gina ~ Tim ~ me ~ and don't forget to tuck yourself in prayer ~ new school year, teachers, students, staff , bus drivers ~ 


  1. I have always loved that Gaelic blessing.

    1. It is SO beautiful; speaks to the heart, doesn't it?

  2. I hope you are doing well. I know you're grieving. (BIG hug)
    You're so right when you say pray for the schools, the teachers, the kids, the bus drivers. Bless you.

    1. thanks for the hugs, Karen; it's been surreal.

    Your blog is a blessing to me. Your words are so well chosen and offer comfort to your reader. Thank you. May God bless you for going forth and making His word known.

    1. Thank you for the gift of your time and comment; God bless you, yours and the work of your hands and heart.

  4. Sandra, I'm sure you've listened to the beautiful musical versions of this blessing? Haunting. Hope you're going to jig my jig out there on the farm today! I was thinking of you as I posted!

    1. Hiya Mags...just watched it, lovely! It's a beautiful day on the farm, won't you be my neighbor?

  5. Thank you for your Sunday posts. They are a blessing to me.

  6. Love the Gaelic blessing and all of the quotes! :)

    1. Do as Mags for a beautiful listen!

  7. Lisa is so right!

    WONDERFUL GEMS, dear Sandra!

    What are these sheep on the photo, so nice brown coat and white head??

    1. Dori, I saw those sheep at 2017 Wool Fest in Cockermouth, England. I can't remember the breed but they are beautiful!

    2. Yes, they really are beautiful! My sister also read this post about peace!

  8. It was peaceful to come here and read all these great quotes on peace. Peace to you...

    1. and to you Ellen. It's worth a lot to live peacefully.

  9. Love reading your blog, as you know. And, those sheep make me HAPPY !!

  10. This Gaelic Blessing is a help, a reminder that I need only to look around me--and turn off the news, or should I say beg the master of the house to turn it off!

    Are these your sheep? They are so pretty.

    1. Those sheep were at WoolFest, held in Cockermouth, England. I went last year, had a blast and saw so many sheep not in this country. When Dave died, I gave up subscription television; my life became a lot quieter and more peaceful. A Blessing!
